ICPSR Awarded New Project to Support Disability and Rehabilitation Research

ICPSR

ICPSR is pleased to announce a new project in collaboration with the Center for Large Data Research and Data Sharing in Rehabilitation (CLDR) at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston to build a data archive that will support disability and rehabilitation research.

The scientific communities conducting disability and rehabilitation research generally lack the infrastructure to support data sharing. With input from CLDR, this new project will leverage ICPSR’s expertise in building data repository infrastructure to solve this problem. ICPSR will develop and launch a website to access the disability and rehabilitation data. The Archive of Data on Disability to Enable Policy and Research (ADDEP) will bring together existing disability data resources already available at ICPSR with newly acquired data from rehabilitation medicine and related areas. The project will also develop webinars, workshops, presentations, and other training tailored to fit the needs of the disability and rehabilitation research communities so as to strengthen and support the data-sharing infrastructure.

For more information about this project please contact Alison Stroud, Archive Manager for ADDEP.

Researchers who have completed their rehabilitation studies are encouraged to explore CLDR’s funding opportunities to have their data collection archived with ADDEP.

The new project (P2CHD065702) is funded by the NIH - National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, in partnership with the National Center for Medical Rehabilitation Research, National Institute for Neurological Disorders and Stroke, and National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering.
